Unusual Kindness

Let's talk about something simple/complicated.... Kindness. Kindness is really a simple concept, but it can be hard at times for multiple reasons. We all can agree that our world needs more of it but sometimes, we don't even do it ourselves!

Show Up

You just gotta show up. Recently I shared a story with someone about something I received from another person (I promise the Dr. Seuss trail ends there). A total gift! Their response to my story was, “it just seems like God is blessing you because you are a pastor.” I kind of didn’t expect that … Continue reading Show Up

What I Learned From Ed Young

For those of you in ministry, ever have one of those really cool ministry moments? One for me was definitely last week, being able to meet and listen to Ed Young give some great leadership advice.

Tear Off Your Clothes!

  SAY WHAT?! I know. You thought this was a Christian blog! **GASP** It is! Keep your clothes on. Just yesterday I came across, yet again, another person ripping off their clothes in the Bible (and people think God's word is not entertaining).

PART I There was once a very hospitable Shunammite woman in the Bible. We actually don't know her name so let's call her Shuna, for short, just for the fun of it. Shunaaaaaa, baby. Whenever Elisha, the prophet, passed through town, she and her husband always opened their home to him. She provided him a place … Continue reading When a Dream Goes Lackluster

Back in Action

Here we are in February, sailing through a new month. I feel like I started January with such vigor, organization, and perspective. Yes, a new year with new goals and ambitions! Then a few weird weeks and a quick tango with the flu had me feeling pushed back and pushed down. I woke up and … Continue reading Back in Action

A Tale of Two Responses

RESPONSES.. We respond to many things every day. Your child comes home with a 70% on a test. You know they tried super hard. It's not an "A" but, you have the choice to celebrate their hard work or come down on them. You walk into work confident you nailed your interview but the job … Continue reading A Tale of Two Responses

Snow Globe Life

A COMBINED POST FROM MATT & ME: When I was younger I used to love the snow globes my mom would bring out during Christmas time. I was always intrigued by the little towns and scenes that were contained in a glass ball filled with water. The best part, of course, was when you shook … Continue reading Snow Globe Life

Growth at Your Workplace

More often than not, we find ourselves starting off where we don't necessarily want to be long term. You can look at that as a setback, but that would be unfortunate. Instead, look at it as training ground for your future. Most people aren't handed what they dream of on a silver plater. You can … Continue reading Growth at Your Workplace
